. chuck schumer comes to mind, and he has already said that the senate will produce a budget. it will mean a lot higher taxes on rich people. if republicans don't like it, forget it. deal with it. it is that message that is coming through loud and clear. they feel that since the cliff deal they could triangulate republicans to make the house allow stock so that if the house rejects with a rare coming up with a look like obstructionists it is no small accident today that this inauguration day republicans chose to announce that they're going to have about on extending the debt limit for another three months. in other words, to put off this very, very important matter for another few months. as much to get their own ducks in order as the countries. but this tells you something about the mind-set of republicans. they still behind the eightball. melissa: we will break that down even more after the next commercial break. let me ask you before we get to that. do you feel like the tenor has changed? of republicans even more in the backseat? maybe they are just walking behind the car now. >> it is
from the president. chuck schumer is the latest essay, to say, as you know, if it comes to another budget that will be stressful, republicans may not like it, but they will have to deal with it. i will have more on the attitude in the approach of the president. i didn't see anything shocking or the president. he is kind of echoing what he already has said. maybe slightly more directed to the point. maybe something that you would normally see in an address like this. maybe more inclined for the state of the union address. >> what is interesting though is that a lot of the lines could have been in his campaign speeches. the whole thing about, well, there are a select few that are making it at the top. the rest are getting the scraps. we have to build them up. i heard that in city after city in ohio and florida and colorado and iowa. neil: were you surprised to hear it now. >> are you going to be up late? >> are you going to have a tv dinner over there? neil: it was enough to say that i won this election and i'm going to go with the spending and this will happen. >> he did, he said th
, the commander in chief, but it turned out to be a surprise toast for none other than senator chuck schumer instead. take a look. >> folks, i raise my glass to a man who never, never, never operates out of fear, only operates out of confidence, and i'm toasting you, chuck. >> oh. and a guy -- a guy who i plan on working with. you can't get rid of me, man. remember, i'm still part of the senate. god bless you, chuck. you've done a great job. lamar, you have as well. to chuck schumer. good to see you, pal. >> i'll toast to that, mr. chuck schumer. >> doesn't need a prompter. >> all right. now, all of his enthusiasm yesterday helped fuel speculation about a presidential run in 2016. just take a look at some of the recent headlines. i've got scarborough over here throwing stuff. i get no respect. i'm like rodney dangerfield. vice president biden invited key players -- >> i'm almost positive he was drinking apple juice. i just poured this jameson. do we really want to see what's going to happen? >> look at this. this is incredible. i can't even get through the script. what am i going to do? what
associated with it. that's right. they're not done yet. here is what new york senator chuck schumer said over the weekend, and i quote, it is going to be a great opportunity for us because in our budget that we will pass we will have tax reform, which many of my republican colleagues like, but it is going to include revenues. a great opportunity to get more revenues. rehire texas. now, republicans say they are not taking this line down. they have been fond of reminding americans it has been for years, four years since the senate has written a budget. today they upped the ante with these calculations. democrats last above the way back in 2009, three pentagon's cabin built, not that we have the money to do it, just the time. a mountain climbing team could have made it to the top of everest and back 292 *. finally, we could have built all 179 miles of the keystone pipeline in that time the senate has been sitting on its budget riding pants. you get the picture. we have been waiting. they have been dawdling. bottom-line, and still could end up being the canary in the coal mine. one guest just the
with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a way to a hopeful confirmation. i've never heard of a nominee who has apologized to so many different people for so many different positions he's took over his career in order for him to get confirmed. i suspect this is more a confirmation conversion than anything heartfelt from hagel. that's why he's saying this. explaining away everything. if i were a senator, what i would do with hagel is keep my questions very short, make no speeches an
wants more. now, chuck schumer is saying, i'll play this in the next segment that he wants tax reform, but tax reform means another increase of revenue, in other words, another increase in taxes. is this negotiatable? will house republicans hold the line? and how do you stop this president? i mean, can you shut down the government? are you willing to shut down the government if the president won't deal with entitlement reform where all the spending is? >> look, you have to deal with entitlement reform if you want to save medicare, that's where the president has been so wrong. we've passed one of the toughest budgets anybody has looked at saving medicare and we grow the economy 13 million people are out of work, we put them back. this is a very conservative congress, and we've stand on ours, and this fight will put us on stronger ground and more importantly shall the american people are going to be with you from the statement if you can't pass the budget you shouldn't be paid and how could you move forward giving anybody a debt limit increase if they can't tell how to spend it. >> sean
have marco rubio on the same page as chuck schumer. yes, we told you pigs are in the air, and senator schumer has high hopes for this proposal. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> but like everything else in washington, not everyone is on board. take republican senator mike lee. he quickly issued this statement in opposition to the gang's plan. here's what he said. reforms to our complexy and dysfunctional immigration system should not in any way favor those who came here illegally over the millions of applicants who seek to come here lawfully. the problem is without reform, there are 11 million people who are undocumented who are living in this country right now, and you can't just support them all. that's why everyone has hit a big wall until the pigs started flying today. miguel marquez spoke to some young people today, and here are their stories. this issue is very personal. >> three yo
cliff despite the fact the fiscal cliff deal past and here we are now. chuck schumer already speaking out on the democratic side saying we will look at this, but we're also going to want to increase taxes. that was a flat-ou flat out linm senator schumer. will the senate rain on this parade? >> the senate reins in every parade everyday. that is not an earth flash there. i voted against raising taxes on any americans for the majority in the house and the senate and the president said some taxes have to go up. i disagreed with that. i didn't think the leadership was going to be in any mood, i know the rank-and-file will not be in any mood to raise taxes. doesn't mean we can't raise some revenue with sales and asset sales and things like that, but in terms of tax increases, i think every house republican would vote no on a pure tax increase. cheryl: spending reductions. i know you and many of your republican colleagues in the house have said and how it programs have to be addressed, but if you recall, said absolutely there would be no discussion of cutting any type of entitlement program
rounds, senator chuck schumer of new york said he will reintroduce legislation over background checks in the number of weeks. in the house, congressman rosa and raul of arizona put forward a bill that would give gun owners a $1,000 a year tax credit for each of two years for turning in assault rifles to state police, none of these are expected to pass of republican controlled house. president obama's address triggered a scathing response from the national rifle association, the leader, rain lapierre, said that president made a mockery of our constitutional rights. >> they are god-given freedoms they belong to us, in the united states of america as our birth right, no government gave them to us, no government can ever take them away. lou: lapierre argued only reason that federal government would want to create a list of gun owners is to quote, tax them or takes them. our next guest is a texas gun shol owneshopowner who is now ca boycott of groupon, after the site canceled his dial for a concealed handgun training course, he said that groupon seems to e8 to to e88ing anyoneo believes in
in their judgment. well, new york democrat senator chuck schumer calling the bipartisan blueprint a major breakthrough. he claims his fellow democrats are not looking to play politics with this plan. >> we do not want immigration as a wage issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. it is our hope that these principles can be turned into legislation by march and have a markup by chairman leahy with the goal of passage out of the senate by late spring or summer. lou: senator mccain bluntly acknowledged the republican party has been losing support of hispanic voters and says this agreement will change all that. >> the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that in many issues which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, you will find that this agreement has very little difference from that of the legislation that was led by senator kennedy some years ago. lou: meanwhile, we will be joined by one of the leaders of the efforts to, working for a year on the republican proposal, adamantly opposi
of congress and chuck schumer, a great leader. what people have to remember is really only the swearing in itself is what's required by the constitution. the rest of these are traditions started by different presidents. one of the traditions was this day of service which brings us back to martin luther king day, which we are celebrating. and we had folks in all 50 states, staff in all 50 states organizing service events and over 200,000 americans come out and serve
yesterday's luncheon at the capitol. everyone was eating and listening to a speech by senator chuck schumer when this happened. >> i think we really deserve a round of applause to our chef -- >> did you see that dismissive head shake there? catch that eye roll there. looks like she didn't like the conversation much going on or coming at her from boehner. >>> up next, republicans have figured out they can't win presidential elections fair and square, so now they want to change the rules. they want to cheat a little. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this. [ male announcer ] yes, you could business pro. yes, you could. go national. go like a pro. to help protect your eye health as you age... would you take it? well, there is. [ male announcer ] it's called ocuvite. a vita
assuaged their worries, ditto, charles schumer, of new york, he addressed criticism of his hard-line anti-gay and anti-abortion political past. he addressed that criticism, where they largely neutralized it. ahead of his confirmation hearings on thursday, republicans are making noises about chuck hagel. the only strange remaining might be evidence of any interesting and therefore important resistance to chuck hagel is probably this ad, you might have seen from an unknown group called "use your mandate." >> chuck hagel, he has been nominated to be secretary of defense. and president obama nominated him with the best of intentions. but it is still a bad choice. hagel is anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-israel, anti-gay, and pro assault weapon. that is just not what we voted for in november. chuck hagel doesn't share our values. there are other people who can do the job, why do we need someone like this? >> so that ad ran on the three network sunday shows last
on to make sure there are no mistakes. it's not just for the president. senator chuck schumer is the events emcee. >> oh yeah. i don't want to do what chief justice roberts did. he's brilliant and he messed up. >> reporter: roberts messed up the oath four years ago. >> i'll execute -- >> faithfully the office of the president faithfully. >> reporter: he had to go to the white house for a do-over. who what are you afraid of? >> introducing the wrong person, who knows? >> reporter: as chair of the inaugural committee, assumer is preparing for this day more than a year. >> we didn't know who the president would be. but together, it's always done in a bipartisan way. >> reporter: a central focus, trying to avoid problems that put a damper on the last obama inauguration. >> tens of thousands of people missed it. they came in from all over the country. so, we've done symbolic things like get rid of the infamous purple tickets and there was a tunnelway that was closed off and thousands of them were just stuck there and missed the whole inauguration. >> reporter: they have done other things to help
to be a politician. sort of like bill clinton or even chuck schumer. these are people who really live off this sort of interaction with crowds. barack obama is a little different kind of character. he is a more reserved, more cerebral kind of person. >> looks like they'll get back in the limb yoo for the final d into the white house. >> it's worth looking at that door to that limo. look at how thick that door is. that's not a honda. >> that's not your typical cadill cadillac. it's not something you just go and say, i'll take one of those. >> with a different paint job. >> yeah, give me the -- >> he really -- i mean, he does not even look like he wants to get back in. gentlemen, i would like to tell you, you might want to turn around, because the vice president and dr. biden are about to approach us and pass us. >> let's see if we can do it again. let's see if joe biden or -- will recognize and will say -- i'm going to have to stand up. once i stand up, all my wires here they sort of fall apart. >> they are very excited to see him. >> let's see -- hey, i'm waving. >> you're watching. >> mr. vice pre
the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule a
like durbin and schumer, liberal democrats going along with something with john mccain and lindsey graham, that's a pretty good sign that this will pass easily in the senate. i think one of the most intriguing stories is the fight for credit. i think there are going to be a lot of people headed by marco rubio who will want to get a lot of this credit. lori: on the political side but it also begs the question, right, greg, what happens to the millions of illegal immigrants already living and working in this country? will it put pressure on available jobs and other services like hospital care, et cetera, what do you think?. >> i don't think so. i would prefer to take a positive spin on this entire story. i think if you look at a country like japan which is a demographic train wreck with a huge deficit, much bigger than ours, we're adding lots of people who will pay social security taxes. who will pay other taxes. you're adding to our population i think a workforce that will actually help our fiscal issues far more than a country say like japan. lori: good comparison. help our fiscal
's rendition of "my country 'tis of thee" got a one word review from senator chuck schumer. >> wow. >> reporter: of course, there were a few media flubs. >> morgan freeman, i think. bill russell, i'm sorry. >> the freedom of every soul on earth. >> it continued. i stopped but it continued. welcome back to our -- welcome back to our
chuck schumer for this issue for a long time. carol mccarthy of new york from the house side of democrat for gun control for a long time. where are the new faces? people like joe manchin, a democrat, saying look at these things. none are saying, let's pass all these things that the president wants. let's look a map of the democrats. we can show you at least 11 vulnerable democratic incumbents. those are at least 11 democratic seats up in 2014. senator from alaska has said no thank you. montana, max baucus has said, i'm not sure we want to do gun control. republicans are saying that we're going to see what harry reid in the senate does and the expectation is at best he could get a very watered down version. no assault weapons ban, maybe progress on background checks and the republicans around the house, from what they are saying, we'll have our committees look at these issues but we're not going to think about voting on a bill until the senate proves it can pass something. on this day, we'll see if he can rally public support and change a lot of minds. >> how visible will the president be
that worked for chuck schumer. we did not once get a call from that office willing to go on the record as to what went on with this prerecording and why it was used on the inauguration. we had to rely on the u.s. marine band. >> so basically for the last several hours this story has been out there he a beyonce through a representative has not made a public statement and the joint congressional committee has not made a statement. the only official statement you're getting is the spokesperson from the u.s. marine band? >> yes. and seated a few rows back, he noticed that the band -- the folks in the bands themselves were not playing their instruments, that they, too, were using a prerecording. so this was a combined prerecording, it appears, of both the u.s. marine band and beyonce performing the national anthem and according to wark tone general, a u.s. marine spokesperson told him that is what happened. they made the decision to use a prerecording and as far as anyone can tell in washington, this has never happened before where the performance of the national anthem had been pretaped a
